Reeves Art + Design presents "An Analog Cork Floating on a Digital Sea: A David Adickes Retrospective."

It can be said that viewing Adickes’ art is nothing short of an historic experience. A prominent member of the Houston art scene since the 1950s, he is always ready to share one of his stories or a quippy joke. While his most visible works are his giant sculptures spread throughout Houston, Adickes has spent the last seven decades producing paintings that blend a classic style with a touch of whimsy.

Now in his mid-90s, Adickes often describes himself as an “analog cork floating on a digital sea trying to find land.” Even though he might view himself as analog, his body of work has proven to transcend the test of time and speak to the hearts of many generations.

This exhibition will explore highlights from Adickes' monumental career spanning from his earliest still-life pieces to his contemporary figurative portraits.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until November 30.
